Two Men Attempt to Steal Cosmetics from Astoria Rite Aid: NYPD

(NYPD)

Nov. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Two men attempted to steal cosmetics from a Rite Aid in Astoria last week, police said.

The make-up bandits entered the store, located at 32-14 31st St, on Nov. 13 at about 9:45 p.m. and attempted to shoplift cosmetics from the drug store, police said.

An employee went to stop the duo and one of the men pulled out a boxcutter and threatened the employee inside, cops said. The suspects, however, left empty handed.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Pat Macnamaracist you make a great point

Why dosn’t Costa (not mentioned in the article) comment on every crime in Queens?!

Agreed, police should have unlimited power

It’s time to stop requiring reasonable suspicion. Cops should be allowed to search all citizens at all times for no reason.

Sure, 90% stopped were African-American or Latino, and 70% were innocent.

Sure, in 2011 there were 685,724 stops with 88% resulting in no conviction.

Who cares if it’s a huge waste of resources, it’s time we let go of our constitutional rights.

How many times has that Rite Aid been robbed, I think the last time, if I remember correctly it was ice cream.
